Kings Gameday: Seize the Day

LA Kings (8-8-2) vs. Colorado Avalanche (8-10)

7:30 PST, Fox Sports West


The Stars have imploded and just lost their best player. The Coyotes haven't sparked offensively and their youth hasn't quite lived up to the height so far. The Ducks look to be rounding into shape after a slow start but aren't quite the dominant team they've been in years past. The Sharks... well, the Sharks are amazing. But after them, there isn't a team that has really made its mark in the Pacific Division. Why not the Kings? They're sitting at .500 right now despite losing their best defenseman in the 2nd game of the season. Their top scorers from last year have underperformed, their goaltending in the first 10 games of the season was subpar, and they just now put together a legitimate top scoring line. And yet they're right there. The Kings have a legitimate shot to make the playoffs, assuming the Stars continue to fall apart and need to use the next month to build up points before they spend the 2nd half of the season on the road. Let's start today.

Prediction: Kings lose, 4-1. Goal by John Zeiler. Fuck these guys.

I had to laugh! I can't believe you're giving a goal to Zeiler tonight!

The Avs are pretty terrible.

That's all.

Wow, that is the most positivity this site has ever had.

Haha. I was waiting to see someone predict their favorite team to lose. For a while I was sure each Gameday blogger was convinced their team was going to go 82-0. Finally, one who thinks they'll go 81-1.

I imagine that there's now a pencil-tip imprint across Adam Foote's back.
